She tells of the rough living conditions in London, where we meet people like the solo mother dying of cancer and longing to give her children a good Christmas and the 90 year old blind lady who refuses a proposal of marriage. In New Zealand she has a large area, is on 24hour call as the only nurse and where most of the roads are not tar-seal. We meet the disfunctional family where the old matriarch and her son in law fight with an axe and carving knife and the young widowed mother who tries to take her own life. There is pathos but also humour in this very readable book.
